This Week in Sustainable NYC (9/23-9/29)

It's Climate Week in NYC, everyone! Maybe you were at last week's World Climate Strike (in Battery Park in NYC, or elsewhere around the Globe), it was truly special hearing from so many passionate young speakers about Climate Change, and being in a sea of kids skipping school for "Fridays for Future"! What was a little overwhelming was how many times medics were called for during the event with people passing out from the heat in the crowd...far to poignant examples of the ecological changes that surround us....That said, here are some more ways you can get involved (as well as some other points of interest).
